How can I get equal time sharing if on child support in Florida?
Under Florida law, a father is assumed to have equal time sharing of the child unless circumstances require a different arrangement. This is because the State of Florida has found that it is in the best interest of children to receive equal parenting from each parent regardless of age or gender of the child. Whether the father pays or receives child support should have no influence on whether the father gets equal time sharing.
If you are on child support, do not currently have equal time sharing, and believe there is no reason why you should be denied equal time sharing, contact an experienced men’s rights attorney today. An attorney can help you determine whether you have the right to equal time sharing of your child. Be aware, though, that a change in the timesharing plan may result in a change to the amount of child support you receive.
